ICT Integration Level of Mathematics Tutors of Colleges of Education in Ghana

J Apawu, I Yidana, WO Apeanti


The use of ICT in enhancing Mathematics instruction in Ghana is rare. This article reports on the second phase of a one-year study which was aimed at discovering the ICT integration level of Mathematics tutors at colleges of education in Ghana. The study used a developmental research design which is a disciplined inquiry conducted in the context of the development of a product or programme for the purpose of improving either the thing being developed or capabilities to develop better things of this kind, or bothafter identifying the relevant previous knowledge (RPK) of participants who will be the beneficiaries of the product or programme. One interview protocol was used to collect data. Six Mathematics tutors from two colleges of education in Ghana took part in this study. Data were analysed qualitatively. The results suggest thatthe participants of the study were at  the information literacy level with regards to ICT integration. A major limitation of this study was the use of non-randomised sample which limits the generalisation of the findings to the two colleges of education at a particular point in time.
